A Bicycle built for two Daisy, Daisy, Give me your answer, do! I'm half crazy, All for the love of you! It won't be a stylish marriage, I can't afford a carriage But you'll look sweet upon the seat Of a bicycle made for two. Patrick, Patrick, here is your answer true! I know that trick, and it will never do. If you can`t afford a carriage, Then there will be no marriage, For I insist I won’t be kissed In a bicycle built for two
